SWIM Application Statement:
The SWIM application is administered by Dorset Council (under the GeoWessex partnership) and as such we are data processors. The data controllers for this record are the individual Lead Local Flood Authorities (LLFA) and risk managers such as the Environment Agency (EA) or utility companies.
The SWIM website collects property / location data on flooding to allow authorities to undertake their legal duties. The answers you give regarding the location and source of flooding are used to ensure that your report reaches the correct authority.
Personal data is collected to allow the system to manage your record. Contact details may be used by the relevant authorities to discuss your report.
The system will not keep contact information or comments and media containing personal data for longer than 7 years unless by agreement with you and where a reason can be provided for the extension request. Personal data may be removed in advance of this by the relevant record lead. You will be notified once your record can no longer be edited unless re-activated by a registered SWIM user.
Data submitted on the SWIM website is shared between Lead Local Flood Authorities, the Environment Agency, emergency services and other organisations who need the data to assist them with analysis, planning or emergency response to flooding. It may be used to plan future flood defence schemes and to inform the public about whether there is a risk of flooding in an area. All non-personal data is also subject to Freedom of Information and Environmental Information Requests as set out in the relevant regulations.
The full privacy notice for this site can be found at https://swim.geowessex.com/uk/PrivacyNotice.
